Very, very sad news from Rejane. Her daughter Olivia, barely 30, died last night. Meningitis. Unbelievable. She has a three year old son. The whole family is distraught. I can’t stop thinking about it. Olivia was absolutely beautiful, full of life, had an excellent sense of humour, and so much to live for. Way too young.
I think the worst thing that can happen to any parent is for their child, whatever age they might be, to die before the parent. I can’t imagine how awful they must be feeling. I have cried and cried and cried, and that’s just me. How must her actual mum and dad be feeling? her siblings? her nieces? her sweet husband? and her grandmother? It just doesn’t bear thinking about.
But her organs will be donated. Even though it’s against the natural order of things, that is the only positive I guess to come out of such a tragedy. Other people can live as a result.
My thoughts are with them all.
